Event 426

Griff Rhys Jones

Insufficiently Welsh

Starlight Stage

Well, er, the clue is in the name... The man was gazing steadily at Griffith Rhys Jones, son of Elwyn and Gwynneth, scion of Megan and Ieuan and Evan, spawn of Betwys-y-Coed, Penmachno and the Rhondda, dark of hair, thick-thighed and round-faced. Griffith Rhys Jones. I was born in Cardiff. My mother was from Ferndale in the Rhondda, my father was from Penylan. Every single one of my relatives...were Welsh. I think I am Welsh. But am I insufficiently Welsh? It’s time to find out. I am going out on the road to search for my Celtic roots and explore the land of my aunties. Language, the landscape, rugby, dogs, legends, botany, wildlife, furniture and a few more bits on the side: I looked into them all and here are the results. Chaired by Justin Albert.
